Lou Reed (born March 2, 1942) is an influential American rock singer-songwriter and guitarist. He first came to prominence as the guitarist and principal singer-songwriter of The Velvet Underground (1965-1973). The band gained little mainstream attention during their career, but in hindsight became one of the most influential of their era. As the Velvets’ principal songwriter, Reed wrote about subjects of personal experience that rarely had been examined in rock and roll, including bondage and S&M, transvestites, drug culture, and transsexuals undergoing surgery. As a guitarist, he was a pioneer in the use of distortion, high volume feedback, and nonstandard tunings.
Reed began a long and eclectic solo career in 1971. He had a hit the following year with "Walk on the Wild Side", though for more than a decade Reed seemed to willfully evade the mainstream commercial success its chart status offered him. (The Wikipedia)



Lou Reed - A Walk On The Wild Side

Holly came from Miami, Fla
Hitchhiked her way across the USA
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
Shaved her leg and then he was she - she said:

"Hey Babe, take a walk on the wild side"
Said "hey honey, take a walk on the wild side"

Candy came from out on the island
In the backroom she was everybodys darling
But she never lost her head
Even when she was given head - she said:

"Hey Babe, take a walk on the wild side"
Said "hey honey, take a walk on the wild side"
And the coloured girls go, doo dodoo

Little Joe never once gave it away
Ev'rybody had to pay and pay
A hustle here and a hustle there
New York city is no place where they said:

"Hey Babe, take a walk on the wild side"
Said "hey Joe, take a walk on the wild side"

Sugar plum fairy came and hit the streets
Looking for soul food and a place to eat
Went to the Apollo, you should have seen him go go go - they said:

"Hey Sugar, take a walk on the wild side"
Said "hey babe, take a walk on the wild side"

Jackie is just speeding away,
Thought she was James Dean for a day
Then I guess she had to crash, Valium would have helped that bash - she said:

"Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side"
Said "hey honey, take a walk on the wild side"
And the coloured girls go, doo dodoo
There is no prosthetic for an amputated spirit
